Christopher Lee, best known by his nickname “The Beast is Back”, asked us to sculpt his delightful robot helper, the Freeman Robotics U-23. We sculpted and prototyped his little friend, which he recast and painted by hand, creating a small series of art pieces for the discerning robot collector.

The U-23 was originally a city owned utility storage unit which as been reconfigured for civilian use. With ten cubic feet of internal storage, the U-23 is indispensable for the urban pack rat.
Nautical Explorer Variant
(Edition of 8)
Freeman Robotics was contracted by the Ocean Conservation Society to develop a small fleet of U-23′s for research and rescue. Only eight were ever made.
Municipal Services Variant
(Edition of 8)
Before the U-23 was modified and offered for sale to the general public, it was utilized daily by construction and clean up crews around the city. On particularly busy garbage days, Freeman Robotics would send additional U-23′s to speed up trash collection. These eight units have been decommissioned and are sold as-is.
